Product Description

PRODUCT

A pdf of THIRTEEN (13) - a baker's dozen! - individual poetry activities that will allow students to play with language, understand form and structure, and be creative. Includes traditional options such as haikus and limericks but also more creative and non-traditional options such as a collaborative poem (modified exquisite corpse), turning pop songs into sonnets, and boiling down an anecdote into a poem with step-by-step instructions. Each activity is set up as its own handout with all instructions and examples included.

WHO IS IT FOR?

Activities would work for grades 7 through 12.

HOW TO USE IT?

  • Poetry stations on specific days to have students circulate and explore wordplay.
  • Throughout National Poetry Month in April.
  • As a way to break through students' discomfort with analyzing poetry. I find that trying to create their own poems demystifies poetry enough that they're willing to take risks to figure out just what William Carlos Wiliams is doing with that red wheelbarrow!
